Highland Field Sports Fair
Update as at 4 May 2020
After very careful consideration of the current Covid 19 crisis, the Fair Committee and Organising Team for the Highland Field Sports Fair, have taken the difficult but necessary decision to cancel this year’s event which was scheduled for 7th & 8th August 2020.
The health and well-being of all of the Fair’s Staff, Volunteers, Contractors, Traders and Visitors as well as the residents of Moy Estate, is absolutely paramount. Given the current and foreseeable health risks posed by Covid 19, the safety of all involved with the event is a very significant concern and therefore the disappointing decision to cancel the Fair has had to be taken.
The Fair Committee would very much like to thank everyone who has been involved with the planning and arrangements that have already taken place for the 2020 Fair, as well as those who had all confirmed their intention to be present and make the event another great success.
The Committee will now focus upon making the 2021 Highland Field Sports Fair a successful and memorable event and will look forward to welcoming everyone back to Moy on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th August 2021.

About the Fair
The Fair offers a diversity of entertainments and activities for all of the family,from crèche facilities to archery! The emphasis is on field sports activities with competitions in fly casting, gun dog handling and clay pigeon shooting. See our What's on page to find out more.
Take your pets for the day and children can enter them into the children's pets parade or, if you have a terrier, try out the terrier races. Please note that only "ground terriers" will be eligible for entry. Activities in the main ring differ from year to year but you may see gun dog or fly-casting demonstrations, pipe bands, falconry displays, and much more.
There is an abundance of stalls selling the best of Scottish produce and there could be anything from traditional fare such as Venison to Arbroath Smokies, or you could purchase a Scottish made dog harness or walking stick.
